Vasyl Nair has been appointed chief executive of the $13 billion, 57,000 member fund super fund for the mining sector.

Nair was installed as acting chief executive in March following the departure of Harry Mitchell.

More recently, Nair held the role of deputy chief executive and head of risk at Mine Super before being appointed to the job.

Before joining the industry fund five years ago, he was an executive manager at the Commonwealth Bank, a senior manager at Westpac, and a corporate lawyer with Piper Alderman.

Mine Super chair Grahame Kelly said Nair's appointment demonstrated strong succession planning while recognising the influential role he played in Mine Super's recent history.

"Over the past five years, Vasyl has been an integral part of the executive team that has overseen a rebrand, new administration platform implementation, investment strategy overhaul, insurer change, and risk transformation," he said.

"These efforts see us placed as one of Australia's top-performing funds over the last financial year.

"Our succession planning has been robust and we are very pleased to have such a committed, dynamic and capable leader within our ranks, who will continue to deliver the best retirement outcomes for our members. I'm extremely confident Vasyl will continue to propel the Fund successfully forward into 2022 and beyond."

Commenting on the promotion Nair added: "I've been a part of the Mine Super family for over five years now and have experienced first-hand the deep care that our teams have for our members and their communities. I'm committed to continuing that care and I look forward to leading a team that works tirelessly to help members achieve the retirement they deserve."
